We have an update on the ticketing front for the Allman Brothers' annual festival known as Wanee. A limited amount of early bird tickets will go on sale this coming Friday, December 10 and will conclude Wednesday, December 15, while supplies last. As for ticket prices, three day passes will run you $175 a pop.
As for the lineup, no news yet, but keep checking back here as details unfold. According to Pollstar, Wanee organizers promise that the lineup “will be one of the most exciting yet! The group of star-studded acts joining The Allman Brothers Band … will add energy and excitement to what is fast becoming one of the most popular festivals in the country.”
The Allman Brothers are at it again, as the Wanee Music Festival gears up for its eighth year at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, in Live Oak, FL. The festival was founded, and is hosted, by the Allman Brothers and often includes performances by members' other bands or side projects. Established in 2005, when it featured only 11 bands, the festival has expanded from its original two stages (Peach & Mushroom) and now includes the eponymously named Porch, Traveling and Campground stages.
Despite its larger size, the Wanee Festival still draws a number of lesser-known bands and it may be worth scheduling your trip to arrive a night early. The Wanee Kickoff Festival is typically the night before the festival and showcases these smaller artists. This event is indicative of the overall environment of the festival; in addition to the crowd being filled with dedicated music fans, there is also a sense of community and environment that some larger festivals are increasingly lacking.

Wanee Festival 2013 Lineup Rumors
Fans have been wishing and hoping and praying since the end of last year's festival, and now, there's almost a consensus that Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Eric Clapton, and Widespread Panic are all the likely to appear. The lineup doesn't vary much in genre from year-to-year, so expect the typical jam-band, dead-head favorites to be back for more.
